Last Friday, three guest speakers visited Prep, and their topics and biographies couldn't have been much more diverse – a perfect example of the possibilities presented by the extended periods of the X- and Y-day schedules that take place every other cycle. The guests were Congressman Albio Sires, pediatrician and Doctors Without Borders volunteer Dr. Peter Cardiello, '77, and noted comic book and graphic novel editor Joseph Illidge.
The Prep community rolled up their sleeves on Tuesday, coming together to help save lives during the annual Fall Blood Drive. Sponsored by Prep's Medical Club in conjunction with the American Red Cross, the drive was a huge success.
On Tuesday evening, 69 seniors were inducted to Prep's McNally-Sinnott Chapter of the National Honor Society during a ceremony in O'Keefe Commons.
One day before students took this year's PSAT, an assembly on Tuesday provided an opportunity to recognize achievements on last year's PSAT, through the National Merit Scholarship, National Achievement Scholarship and National Hispanic Recognition programs.
Joined by 200 guests at Mayfair Farms last week, seven alumni enjoyed a moment of recognition for their efforts in service to their professions and to their community. As they accepted their awards and joined the Prep Hall of Fame, each expressed gratitude to the people and the place that have inspired their achievements.
